Industrial Velocity Geophones

Posted by Nimitha on October 17th, 2019


Cable Supplies Inc. offers durable and low-cost industrial velocity geophone detectors which helps to identify vibration problems before catastrophic failure occurs, machine balancing and monitoring as well as to appraise structural strength and security intrusion detectors. Cable Supplies Inc. have1hz, 2 Hz, 2.5 Hz velocity geophones and 4.5 Hz, 5 Hz high sensitivity geophone. We also have a 10Hz high temperature and more.

Machinery Balancing: Velocity geophones are good to analyze angular motion and wobble in both fabrication and assembly of shafts, bearings and flywheels.

Machinery Analysis: For monitoring machinery performance, wear and failure velocity geophones are mounted on strategic locations. Industrial velocity geophone helps to identify vibration problems in machinery to avoid catastrophic failure in compressor and pump systems, surge, torsion vibration and resonance. Industrial velocity geophone detects wear and tear of critical machine parts such as shafts, bearings etc. before they fail.

Vibration Monitoring: One of the main use of velocity geophones are detected measurement of vibration levels for locating and positioning critical machinery and equipment in factories and offices.

Structural Evaluation: Velocity geophones are commonly used to detect seismic and microseismic events to predict and analyze deformations of buildings, dams, mines and bridges to govern where breakdowns may occur.

Intrusion Detection: Another main feature of velocity geophones is it is used for security and surveillance systems to detect movement along borders, prison perimeters, broadways and in buildings.

Types of Velocity Geophones

  • PS-1 (1 Hz seismometer)
  • PS-2 (2hz)  Very small size
  • PS-2.5 (2.5hz)
  • PS-4.5 (4.5hz)
  • PS(H)-1
  • PS(H)-2
  • PS-4.5B1
  • High-Temperature Geophones

PS (H)-1

PS (H)-1 geophone is a low-frequency geophone, It is a class of 1 Hz geophone.PS (H)-1 is a kind of geophone working without external power supply. This low-frequency geophone commonly used in the fields of deep seismic exploration, engineering measuring pulse and other vibration analysis. This kind of geophone can be used as a single point and also 3-component.

Features of PS (H)-1

  • Low frequency: 1Hz.
  • Vertical and horizontal are available.

PS (H)-2

PS (H)-2 is a new model low-frequency geophone which doesn’t need any external power supply for working. It can be widely used in the field of deep seismic exploration, engineering measuring pulse and other Vibration analysis fields.

Features of PS (H)-2

  • Low-frequency: 2 Hz.
  • High signal to noise ratio.
  • Wide dynamic range.
  • Vertical and horizontal are available.


PS-4.5B1 geophone is a variety of low-frequency geophone. Rotating coil in PS-4.5B1 geophone eliminate the traverse impact. This geophone can be used as a single point and 3-component. This geophone can be widely used in seismic exploration, engineer vibration etc.

Features of PS-4.5B1

  • Low frequency.
  • High signal to noise ratio.
  • Low distortion.
  • Vertical and horizontal available.

High-Temperature Geophone

 HT series is a high-temperature resistant geophone, which is one of the latest products independently developed by Sunfull. Operating temperature of HT geophones ranges from -40°C to 200°C. It is suitable for downhole array applications and industrial vibration monitoring. We provide HT geophones with the natural frequency of 8Hz and 15Hz.

 Features of HT geophone

  • Tested at 200℃
  • Suitable for downhole operations.
  • Light Weight.
